HYT Unveils First-ever Pocket Watch
Restating its desire to invent the watches of tomorrow, HYT has unveiled its first ever pocket watch, the Skull Pocket.
With the Skull Pocket, HYT is restating its desire to invent the watches of tomorrow, using the knowledge of the past and the science of today. The pocket watch, one of the most noble legacies of traditional watchmaking, has become a new playground and means of expression for HYT.
It exudes an “art de vivre” which is both contemporary and unconventional, embodied by this rare, interactive piece. The fluid technology integrated in HYT’s Skull Pocket sits perfectly with all the lines of the traditional mechanical watch, bringing these into the 21st century.
This ability to take fine watchmaking far beyond its conventional horizons is one of the reasons why HYT has just joined the very exclusive circle of partner brands of the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie.
The assembly sits within a 59 mm case which was specially created for the Skull Pocket, made from titanium and black DLC titanium. In place of the lugs, HYT has developed an exclusive cover system to protect the dial. Articulated by a hinge at 12 o’clock, it is triggered by the iconic rider at 6 o’clock, which has become one of the brand’s aesthetic hallmarks.
The cover features an engraved pattern with leather inserts, and can be fully customised. When pressed gently downwards, this rider releases the cover, unveiling the Skull Pocket dial. For the first time, the skull is completely faceted in a contemporary design, subtly reflecting the light in an echo of the Clous de Paris stud finish which surrounds it.
